    Medallions, red with white outlines for an oval, lobed frame and four tendrils inside; brown squares with white details, of a hatched border and four stylized, short tendrils. The red background is filled entirely with stylized tendrils.

    The reverse shows less dye saturation than the surface. The block size used was 13 cm. x 7.5 cm. Some overlapping of the brown squares indicates that all red parts were stamped and dyed first, then the brown design was stamped and dyed.
